Using Templates When Creating Guides

We have added a new option for users creating a new Guide in LibGuides. Now you can choose to copy the style (and content) from an existing Guide and then work from there, rather than starting with a blank/empty Guide.
When you click on the “Create New Guide” link on the main admin page, you will see a new option – “Use Template From” and then a dropdown box of all current Guides in the system. You can pick the default “I want to start fresh” option, which will create a blank Guide, or select one of the existing Guides to copy its style and data into this new Guide you’re creating.

This new feature gives librarians the ability to create templates for new Guides in the system. This can speed up the creation of new content in LibGuides, and help preserve the uniform structure and form for Guides, if desired.
